Two Al Badr militants were killed in an encounter with security forces in the Khonmoh area of Jammu and Kashmir's Srinagar district on Monday, police said.
The security forces had launched a cordon and search operation in the area on the outskirts of the city, following information about the presence of militants there, they said.

The slain militants were affiliated to the proscribed Al Badr terror outfit and they have been identified as Wasim Bashir Pandit and Mudasir Ahmad Khanday, a police spokesman said.
